When you were a kid, and your parents were still responsible for managing your schedule, the first heatwave of May or June probably meant a trip to the salon for a "summer haircut."

Not only does the warm-weather chop make sense logically (because it's about to get humid as hell and the last thing you want is a heavy blanket of hair sticking to the back of your neck), it's also very on-trend.
